Royally Waiting {link-up #12!}

Royally Waiting... a weekly peek into your week link-up

Welcome back to Royally Waiting!  A place where you can share a glimpse into what's going on in your world!  It's been slightly crazy/hectic around these parts - hence the blogging hiatus!  I'm taking my own advice and making some changes and hope to be back blogging on a regular basis real soon!

KatyShelly and I are so glad you are here and hope you'll link up with us!  It's a fun way to share what's going on in your world.  Here's a quick peek into what we've been up to!

LOVING - It's no secret that I LOVE Farmgirl Paints and her fabulous cuffs.  I've made some pretty big life changes lately and wanted a cuff that reflected these changes.  What do you think?


DANCING - Our kids love to dance!  Colby with his Wrangler group, Holden in her ballet and jazz class, and Hope with her Spark group.  In any given week we are at the studio at least 3 days a week.  It's crazy but fun too!  Last week we had two back-to-back recitals - one on Wednesday night and one on Thursday night.  I love watching them perform!  Here are a few of my favorite pictures!

 dance is always more fun when you're in class with your bestie!


Our amazingly awesome babysitter, Cheyenne, came to BOTH of the recitals!  She's a rock star!

My parents were in town and also made it to both recitals.  You know your people love you when they can sit through multiple hours of performances just to watch your kiddo on stage for 2-3 minutes!  Thank you, Dede and Pop Pop!


And quite possibly my most favorite picture!!!  LOVE!

READING - Hope's Kindergarten class held a Literacy Cafe last Friday.  Mike and I loved hearing her read passages from the beginning of school and then books that she's currently reading!  Kindergarten rocks!


VOLUNTEERING - I love serving with my kiddos.  This past Sunday Colby and I volunteered at the FCA golf tournament.  Colby and I don't get a chance to hang out just the two of us much so I was in heaven having a couple of hours being able to talk, laugh, and catch up on what's going on with him.  As he wraps up his freshman year, I'm reminded that the clock is ticking and this kid will be leaving for college in a mere three years.  #somebodyholdme


TESTING - Texas STAAR test - oh how I de-TEST you!!!  Holden has extreme test anxiety so these tests can really put a strain on her.  Even though the tests bring out some very hard to deal with feelings, I cherish the chance to do a little something special for her so that she knows I'm thinking about her.  Here's what was waiting on her the past couple of mornings.



CARPOOLING - Bring a friend to dance week was in full effect this week and on Monday I had a car full of cuties!  There were at least 4 conversations going on at once and a ton of giggles!!!


WAITING ON... - Yep - here comes the broken record again...  We are STILL waiting to move back into our house!  Ugh!!!  This Saturday will be 14 weeks since we moved out.  We were told earlier this week that we could start moving in this weekend.  I'm still not convinced but I'm crossing my fingers!!!

Here's a sneak peek at our living room!


What are you WAITING ON?

Don't forget to link up with us before you go!  We look forward to you sharing what's going on in your world!

  3. Hopefully you can move in this weekend.

    I am looking forward to the end of the school year. Three more weeks, way to much staff drama for me.

    Thanks for hosting and have a wonderful rest of the week.

  4. I can't wait to see everything, but the living room looks great, fingers crossed that you can move in! Man we just started the whole dance life with my 3 year old, the costumes cost a fortune and then it cost us $100 to see my kid dance for, like you said, 3 minutes! Yikes. But they sure are cute!
